LA CoC Governance Charter

The most recent update to the LA CoC Governance Charter occurred in June 2022 and focused on clarifying roles and responsibilities for operating the LA CoC. The 2023 update will continue to make incremental changes based on HUD guidance and stakeholder and community feedback. Major revisions for 2023 will focus on clarifying and designating governance and oversight of the Coordinated Entry System (CES) Policy Council.
